With Jesse (Dominic Cooper), Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun) and Tulip’s (Ruth Negga) mission to drag a still-missing God back to Heaven being sidetracked by the small matter of Tulip being dead, AMC‘s adaptation of Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon‘s comic book series Preacher rages along “The Road to Angelville” heading into its third season premiere on Sunday, June 24, at 10 p.m. ET.
In its honor, The Road to Angelville: Bleeding Cool’s Preacher Week is giving faithful fans interviews with executive producers Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg; showrunner/executive producer Sam Catlin (Breaking Bad); actor Colin Cunningham (TC); actress Betty Buckley (Gran’ma Marie L’Angell); and Gilgun. We’re also looking back at the seasons 1 & 2 for clues to what’s ahead; reflecting on our “cosplay year” as Jesse Custer at New York Comic Con (NYCC); and throwing out some surprises that hopefully make the wait for Sunday a little more bearable.
All of this leads to the return of Taking Confession, Bleeding Cool‘s Preacher live-blog, on Sunday, June 24, starting at 10 p.m. ET; with some sweet “pre-game” stuff happening as our live-blog site goes live at 9 p.m. ET (at Bleeding Cool’s website). Join us as we share our thoughts on ‘Angelville’ in real time – and stay tuned because there might just be a live post-show happening…???
Let’s be clear: it’s hard to not know what you’re getting yourself into when you start down the road to AMC’s Preacher. Ennis and Dillon’s comic book series ended its run eighteen years ago, which means there’s been nearly two decades to do some background. But for a series that’s already had suicidal angels, Jesus’s inbred relative, A sympathetic Hitler, a drug-addicted vampire and a BDSM “god,” it never hurts to keep getting that message out – especially now that Jesse, Cassidy and Tulip find themselves at The L’Angell’s doorstep.
Preacher has been in pure “offense mode” with their third season promotional campaign; not only embracing but proudly sporting on its sleeve all of the things that might make some people want to protest it – the very same qualities that make the show a huge success. So unless you’re easily offended, provoked, outraged, addicted, confused, disturbed, distressed, fooled or terrified, check out a gallery of some of Preacher‘s best promos:
Not like you need another shot of adrenaline to get jacked for Sunday’s Season 3 premiere of AMC’s Preacher, but just to be on the safe side… here’s a look at the official trailer, teasers, sneak previews, and behind-the-scenes videos to help blaze your trail to Angelville:
PREACHER is a dramatic thrill ride that follows West Texas preacher Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper), his badass girlfriend Tulip (Academy Award nominee Ruth Negga) and an Irish vampire named Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun) as they embark on a road trip to find God and are thrust into a twisted battle spanning Heaven, Hell and everywhere in between.
The 10-episode third season follows Jesse’s quest for God which takes him back to the place he’s been avoiding his whole life: home. Jesse, Tulip and Cassidy return to Angelville, the Louisiana Plantation where Jesse was raised, and find old grudges and deadly obligations await them. With the help of his friends — and a few enemies — Jesse will need to escape his past…because the future of the world depends on it.
Ian Colletti, Graham McTavish, Pip Torrens, Julie Ann Emery, and Malcolm Barrett also return for the third season; joined by new series regulars Betty Buckley (Supergirl, Split); Colin Cunningham (Blood Drive, Falling Skies); Jeremy Childs (The Last Castle, Nashville); Liz McGeever (Star, Nashville); Jonny Coyne (Turn, Alcatraz); Adam Croasdell (Reign); and Prema Cruz (Mozart in the Jungle).
